Google on Tuesday released an extension for its web browser to identify websites that could make users open to malware attacks.
According to tech website PC World (opens in new tab) Google Inc. has launched a new tool called DOM Snitch for its Chrome browser that would help analysts and developers to flag websites and identify holes in their web applications in client-side code.
DOM Snitch is one of the many steps taken by the Mountain View, California-based Google Inc. in order to improve web security. The company believes that web security will play a crucial part in the future of web-based businesses and therefore it is also working towards building a higher level of security for Chrome. Skipfish and Ratproxy are two other code-testing tools on which Google has been working for some time now.
